Talking "Disturbed Mate" stereo upgrade

I started on the stereo upgrade about a week ago with help from Megan. So far so good! Here is the plan. Replace the radio and speakers. Then add subs, amp, and 22" wide screen
The audio will consist of the following
Pioneer~ AVH-P1400DVD
Pioneer~ CD-MR80D wired remote with display
Pioneer~ (1) GM-7300m 800w mono amp
Pioneer~ (2) TS-W303DVC IMPP 12" subs
Pioneer~ (2) GM-3300T 300w 2ch amps
Pioneer~ (2) TS-A6994R 5way 6x9's for the cabin
Pioneer~ (6) TS-A1674R 3way 6.5's for the cockpit

Still looking at the LCD TV's but it will be a very thin, almost flush mount setup in the cabin on the port side (fridge side).

I will start with the subs and amps install first
Everything is getting mounted in the old crapper location. It was removed as I will not allow someone to use it and have crap or piss splashing around in my cabin while running down the lake.
Crapper gone!

Hoses removed and scrubbed down, amp placement is determined


From there the sub location is determined as well. Using a storage area that is useless due to its size as the enclosure

From there, the nightmare of wiring starts. I guess at one point there was a nice stereo in here. There is 4g wire from the batteries up to under the helm. The sad part is all the wires were cut when it was removed and they left a mess in there. So all this will be sorted out over the next couple days.... hopefully!
Believe it or not this is after I started cleaning it up. Still a long way to go!


Then more fun of running wires so everything works as I want it to. I will have 3 switches to control the amps. They will get power from the remote as they should but it will allow me to turn off the subs, cabin or cockpit speakers. So if its late and we are laying in bed and I wana pop in an adult movie (LOL), I can only run the cabin speakers without the cockpit or subs blasting the lake
Amp wiring, not spotless but it will be hidden

The sides are covered with 1/2" foam then a yellow cloth material. I also made the covers which will be covered in the same grey tweed that is on the walls and ceiling!



Hopefully Miami Rubber has the tweed I need for the trim panels!

More to come

That's gonna be a sweet setup when you're done. I like the fact you can control the audio in different areas of the boat.

They are in a enclosure. I am going to mess with blocking off the port (3" hole that the pump out hose went through) and see if there is a difference in sound. If it sounds better with the hole, I'll still have to port the starboard side. If they sound better without the port, I will glass over the hole on the port side I had the drill laying on the bed base and the 18v dewalt was bouncing clear off the wood I should have video taped it, was cracking me up!!

Those IMPP's are best in a sealed, non ported enclosure. I think the recomended airspace was 1.1 or 1.2 cubic feet each.
